“All Bill Clinton had to show before Newt Gingrich’s leadership in the House was a failed stimulus, a failed attempt at national health care … and of course, midnight basketball,” O’Brien said this week. “It was not Bill Clinton who crafted the welfare reform that lifted millions out of poverty. … It was only the dogged determination of Newt Gingrich’s House of Representatives.”
Ralph Reed, the head of the Faith and Freedom Coalition who, as head of the Christian Coalition, played a key role in helping Republicans take back the House in 1994, also defended Gingrich. “Anytime you have those kinds of public policy victories, there’s obviously plenty of credit to go around,” said Reed, a longtime Gingrich friend who is neutral in the 2012 race. “But the fact is on the seminal achievements of the ’90s, especially a tax cut, balanced budget and welfare reform, Clinton was dragged kicking and screaming to the altar. And it was only after multiple vetoes, including vetoes that led to a government shutdown, that those changes in public policy were achieved.”

How can you guys ignore the fact that Clinton ruined the economy it just wasn't felt until years later?
Trump is one of the more successful businessmen this country has seen in modern times and built a 10B+ empire on the back of a 1M loan.
Who was this written for other than those who don't have the capacity to think???

Hillary Clinton railed against Donald Trump on everything from wages and immigration to paid family leave and his business dealings in a wide-ranging speech to union members here Monday.
"He could bankrupt America like he's bankrupted his companies," Clinton warned during remarks at the Service Employees International Union's annual convention. "Ask yourself: how could anybody lose money running a casino? Really."
Hillary Clinton Calls Trump a 'Bully' Who Threatens Economy
Now I'm starting to see the appeal of Mark Cuban as Clinton's potential VP choice. Cuban has been nothing but successful as a businessman.
Add to that the following:
Clinton: I'd put Bill 'in charge of revitalizing the economy'
That would be an awesome combination. Bill Clinton in charge of revitalizing the economy and Cuban out-Trumping Trump.
It could tarnish the woman card quite a bit because Hillary would end up winning because she aligned herself with men.
But, if that's what it takes to win, does she have a choice?

Despite Trump failing several times, he is, right now, in 2016, extremely successful to the order of 10,000,000,000 dollars or some such.
He fell, but got up, and now is one of the richest people in the world.
